I'm massively intruiged by this film. If you have ten minutes, have a read of this:
Some of the stuff they're saying about it is pretty bold
- Rolling Stone magazine described Wall-E as "a landmark in modern moviemaking" and an "enduring classic" that bears comparison to 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars, ET and even Waiting for Godot
- John Anderson of The Washington Post wrote that the film would "raise your hopes for humanity"
- "I thought it was extraordinary," says Steven Gaydos, Variety's executive editor, who attended Wall-E's Los Angeles premiere. "It felt like history in the making; one of those landmark films that people will be talking about for ever. How rare it is to work in Hollywood and to be able to hold your head up high and say, 'I'm proud to work in this business. I'm proud to be associated with Hollywood film-making.' Everybody knocks the big studio movies. They're supposed to be soulless. They're supposed to be commercialised. They're supposed to be mainstream and dumbed down. But I was just sitting there thinking, 'No, not this time.'
- "Wall-E has an incredible shot at a best picture nomination. It's hard to believe there will be five better films this year. ET was one of those rare science-fiction fantasy movies that get nominated for best picture, and I think Wall-E is probably superior to ET in just about every way."
